David R. Ellis to Direct Humpty Dumpty


David R. Ellis (Snakes on a Plane) has been hired by former New Line executive Mark Ordesky to direct Humpty Dumpty, reports Variety.

The trade says the 3-D sci-fi horror film is about a half-human, half-alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the Deep South.

Billy Majestic is writing the script for the movie, which goes into production this September.
